Yes, obviously a teaser to get people to add sky sports.

Good for those that don't subscribe to SS but of little use to those that do.

However, current thinking seems to be that Amazon will not enter the game until the following bidding process in 2022. This now seems the most likely scenario, but I'm not ruling out the possibility that Amazon might surprise everybody with a bid this time around. Maybe to test the waters, they will start with one of the smaller packages.
According to Rupert Murdoch in a recent interview on TV he sees Facebook as the biggest threat.

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

Will streaming be profitable though?

For instance, if a company gets a premier league package it won't be one of the all games in one round package, because they simply won't have the infrastructure to be able to film all of them in a 2-3 day period.

Whatever package they bid for the cost of filming and distribution will be enormous compared with the benefits.

Just how much will people pay for access to the stream?

NRL (Australian rugby league) is moving to streaming of all games in 2018 - no indication of cost as yet (apart from saying an equivalent for a different sport was approx. £20pm) - NRL was on Premier Sports (£10pm) so as far as I can see there will be few people willing to pay much more than £5pm for access to the streaming.

I i agine the feed will be from Australian broadcasters so apart from cost for the rights and streaming costs there can be little extra costs, but will they be able to make it pay?

If someone like Amazon got some of the Premier League matches I think it would alienate a hell of a lot of people like me who don't want to sit in front of a computer screen watching football or have the know how to hook it up to their TV.
